2023 Super Bowl halftime: Rihanna performance draws mixed reviews, second pregnancy confirmed

Some people were really hoping Rihanna would perform "Pon de Replay," but unfortunately the 2005 hit didn't make the cut

It was hit after hit from Rihanna for the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show.

Featuring songs like "B-tch Better Have My Money," "Work," "All Of The Lights," "Run This Town," "Diamonds" and "Umbrella," the singer shined in an all-red ensemble, surrounded by backup dancers in all white.

For many, seeing this Super Bowl LVII performance was an absolute highlight.

Several people online have reacted saying they've missed watching the superstar perform live. It had been five years since her last live performance and seven years since Rihanna has released an album.

While Rihanna received a lot of praise online, some people were more lukewarm on her performance, and some were expecting her to bring some guests to the stage during her performance.

Some people were really hoping she would perform "Pon de Replay," but unfortunately the 2005 hit didn't make the cut for Rihanna's Super Bowl set list.

People on social media have also been questioning whether or not Rihanna is pregnant, after seeing her live during the Super Bowl. People did confirm Sunday that the singer is in fact pregnant with her second child.
